Default ELC, What is it?

I just looked into a post where somewone wanted to know how to "haggle".

Somewone mentioned an ELC for the suspension, and how if it'* weighed down the rear of the car should rise to compensate for the gained weight in he rear.

What is this really?


I have a 1992 SE, does my car have this feature?

Electronic leveling control. When weight is put in the back of the car, it will lift the suspension so the car stays level. At the track, have people sit in the back and wait for it to rise. Then pull its sensor and when the people get out the rear end will be jacked up so more weight is on the front tires yeilding better traction.

Mr. Speedy...being a 92 SE I do not believe you have it. To confirm this, look under the hood on the driverside fender above the charcoal canister. If you do not see a compressor then you do not have the ELC option.
